Strike Posted September 26, 2018 Share Posted September 26, 2018 (edited) I recently picked up a decent sized stump to use as an 'anvil' and have run into a problem. I was working a piece of 90 degree 1/8" x 1" x 5" shiny mystery steel in my jabod forge (without air pump, that comes tomorrow) and was able to straighten it on my stump with no problems (except crazy lungblowing, cherry red) and when I went to form the profile it just kept driving itself into the wood. I was gonna work on something that resembles a knife...that's my problem and I don't know where to go next. Tomorrow when I get my air hooked up and it get's even hotter I anticipate that it will penetrate the stump even more thus I am stuck until I solve this. Anybody got a cheap $ solution? I do not know what kind of wood it is but it is HARD but a bit moist. oh yeah, I was also beating on a largish 6 inch bolt... thanks for your time ladies and gentlemen. Edited September 26, 2018 by Strike Need to show you the steel i was working. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
